Cutting and folding means creating a whole new element through the sequence of two simple actions.
Starting from a rectangular slab, the cutting action draws new geometries on the plane by separating different areas which, however, always remain partially attached through some appendages.
The second action consists in achieving the imaginary bending of a material that is impossible to fold, the stone. The top of the console remains parallel to the ground and still joined to two sets of legs laterally. While these are doubled from the table top until reaching the perpendicularity with it.
The result is an object with extreme sinuosity and lightness capable of involving the user for the conceptual strength necessary to fold the non-foldable.
